Creature Comforts (UK)

Show Summary

Creature Comforts is a plasticine animation made by Aardman studios. The show started as part of a series commissioned by Channel 4, called Lip Sync in 1989, the show was 1 of 4 films shown under this strand, later on it was picked up by ITV1 for a 13 part series. Since then it has returned for a second series still working with the same premise as the original show in 1989. Which is featuring various creatures who are interviewed about a different topic each episode, but the voices are not those of the creatures, it's members of the British public. After the first two series, a short special was made for the BBC's Comic Relief 2007 telethon, meaning that for the first time, Creature Comforts was shown on primetime BBC 1. On Christmas Day 2007, a new set of Creature Comforts ads, highlighting discrimination against disabled people, entitled Creature Discomforts began airing.

  • It is funny and very clever to see animal characters acting so blatantly and realistically like humans while being interviewed; and on an animated show, it works very well.

    8.9
    This show is complex and unique.

    The 'members of the public' clearly aren't working from a script and act exactly like they are being interviewed (which they are).



    To me, it is just so hilarious to see tiny little Dung-Beetles and Clams being asked questions about situations that would usually never occur to them, while they act and talk like normal human beings.



    The problem lots of people have with this show is that it can be boring, as the characters talk very slowly, and its basically just like watching a British family have a conversation.

    But those people just do not understand how clever it is.

    They're just expecting an animated show that is 100% similar to everything else on TV, and as soon as they see that it isn't, they immediately tune out.moreless
  • The Christmas Episode was definately not worth watching

    5.1
    Creature comforts is definately one of my favourite shows, I have the complete series two and am planning on buying the first series. Normally the show is so amazing and I made sure I was home on sundays to watch it. but I recently saw the christmas episode, and in my opinion it isn't up to speed with the rest of the shows, I think the way that they were all talking about the twelve days of christmas song all the way through wasn't good at all, I admit, I found certain parts funny, but overall I thought it was quite bad.moreless

    In the tradiion of Wallace and Gromit its plasticine characters that come to life in creature comforts.



    This show is done in a documentary like kind of format where there is a particular subject and its is asked to all sorts of animals that are all shapes and sizes.



    None of the voices are put on, they talk like everyday average people, but the fact that they are animals makes it much more interesting.



    Ac ouple of my favourites are the two dogs on the couch, the french horse the dog with what sounds like an indian accent and the hamster.



    I saw the "12 days of Christmas" special the other day and it was my favourite episode.



    A lot of time is put into this show and it really is worth it!

  • this is a cool program

    9.0
    this is so funny cos the really fat animals seem like people all over the world for example theres this whale on there that looks like this kid who used to come to tonyrefail comprehensive and his name is julian harris. apart from this obese kid that looks like the whale this is a decent show.
  • HALLOWEEN IS ALMOST HERE, AND THE CLASSIC SERIES BEWITCHED AND THE ADDAMS FAMILY WILL GET YOU IN THE SPIRIT, WHILE THE MINISERIES NIGHTMARES AND DREAMSCAPES: FROM THE STORIES OF STEPHEN KING WILL FULFILL YOUR NEED FOR FRIGHT. DON'T FORGET TO PICK UP SUCH HILARIOUS FAVORITES AS SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE: BEST OF SATURDAY TV FUNHOUSE, SCTV, AND BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD FOR SOME LAUGHS.
